Project Title: Wanakena Water Company, Inc.
Location: Five Ponds Wilderness Area, Wanakena Primitive Corridor and Wanakena Moderate Intensity Use Area, Town of Fine, St. Lawrence County
Comment Period Ends: March 4, 2004
Project Description: The project involves improvements to the existing Wanakena Water Company’s water supply and distribution system. The water system services 78 hookups in the Wanakena Moderate Intensity Use Area. The existing water supply system is currently located on Forest Preserve, and the distribution system is located within the Wanakena Moderate Intensity Use Area. The Wanakena Water Company proposes to develop a backup water supply, install new water lines, abandon existing lines in place and construct a new 26 ft. x 30 ft. water system control and treatment building. The project includes improvements to 350 feet of existing road, construction of 275 feet of new road including the removal of 123 trees, improvements to an existing spring as a backup water supply, and the installation of 6,710± feet of new 4 inch HDPE raw water main all within the Forest Preserve pursuant to retained deed rights. Portions of the existing system are within the Wanakena Primitive Corridor and the Five Ponds Wilderness area. The proposed actions will require an expansion of the Primitive Corridor. The new raw water lines will connect an existing water supply system (i.e. six concrete wells/cisterns and two 1,000 gallon water tanks installed in 1992) to a proposed new water system control and treatment building built on lands owned by the Town of Fine. The project also includes a crossing of the Oswegatchie River and the installation of about 10,000± feet of new distribution lines within the Wanakena Moderate Intensity Use Area.
